The X Factor's Only The Young have responded to reports that they are to join S Club 7 on tour.

Earlier this month, S Club 7 reunited for Children in Need and they have since announced that they will be hitting the road in 2015.

The band, who found fame in TV show Miami 7 in 1999, will be performing 11 dates up and down the UK and it has been claimed that Only The Young will be joining them.

However, speaking to Reveal today, it seems OTY - who were eliminated from The X Factor on Saturday night - haven't been approached for the gig...as far as they are aware!

The band - Mikey Bromley, Charlie George, Parisa Tarhomani and Betsy-Blue English - admit it would be a 'Dream Come True', although the only tour they are sure about next year is the 'X Factor Live Tour 2015'.

Parisa told us: "It's not confirmed and we haven't had any discussions about it. S Club 7 were amazing when we were growing up but we've got so much stuff coming in 2015 that I've no idea whether we can even do it."

One band member who DEFINITELY wants to join Paul Cattermole, Jon Lee, Bradley McIntosh, Rachel Stevens, Tina Barrett, Hannah Spearitt and Jo O'Meara on the road, however, is Betsy-Blue!

"If someone had told me when I was seven that there was a chance I might tour with S Club 7, well, it literally would be a dream come true - no pun intended!"

Only The Young were the first of two acts to be sent home from The X Factor this weekend in a double elimination. The following night, Stevi Ritchie left the competition after finding himself in the bottom two with Andrea Faustini.

Speaking after their elimination, Only The Young said they believed they would still be in the running if there had been a sing-off on Saturday night.
